Separate volume controls
The game's lone volume control affects all audio in the game. Audio can be respectively increased or decreased by using Ctrl+ or Ctrl+. Audio can also be muted by pressing Ctrl+M. All volume options are also available via context menu, which can be brought up by pressing Alt and then selecting "Options > Volume" at the top.
Surround sound
Closed captions
Mute on focus lost


Language UI Audio Sub Notes
Note that some of the interface, as well as the babies' dialogue, has deliberately poor grammar (like "Stuff we gots so far") to match the style of the show.

Issues unresolved[edit]

Game cannot run on Windows XP[edit]

Although the game installs on Windows XP, it cannot run on it. Without Windows Compatibility Mode, the game will crash on launch. With the proper settings (such as setting to Windows 95 mode and enabling "Run in 256 colors"), the game will launch, but it not detect QuickTime 3.0 installed (whether or not it is installed) and will automatically quit after an error prompt.
